    Is there an unforgivable sin in the Bahai religion?

    Hey, my fellow Baha'is! I have a good question to discuss. Is there an unforgivable sin in the Bahai religion? I read in Christianity that it's not taking God's name in vain. I read that God can forgive you for that. I read it was an evil person trying to rebel against God and discredit God and...

    Sin

    I'm new to the Baha'i religion and am studying it. I had a question. I read that the story of Adam and Eve was only symbolic and was never meant to be taking literally. So if the first sin never happened. Do we need to repent of our sins? Or am I misunderstanding Baha'i interpretation? Could...

    If a certain topic has not been discussed in the scriptures and its a grey area and is passed on to the UHJ and they forbid it as an letter of advice and not enforce it as a law is it a sin to disagree with the decision until it's enforced as a law as I am aware we cannot deviate from the UHJ...

    Is backbiting a greater sin than murder, adultery or drinking?

    Abha Dear One's, I have been reading a lot these days and one of the things that is troubling me is that if Backbiting is the greatest sin, then why we don't feel that sense of shame and humiliation when we backbite but if we see a Bahai drinking, we think it's a huge thing. At a personal...
